The Scottish Hospitality Awards 2022 celebrate industry excellence

Creative Oceanic are proud to announce the full list of finalists at The Scottish Hospitality Awards 2022

The Scottish Hospitality Awards 2022 are organised and hosted by Creative Oceanic but voted for by the Scottish public. After a tremendous number of nominations received, the list with the top contenders has been complied.

The black-tie event will be held on Monday, May 16 at The Marriott Hotel, Glasgow, where thriving professionals will gather together for a memorable celebration of the champions that work hard for the industry.

The Scottish Hospitality Awards aim to celebrate the dedication, skill and customer service of the professionals that work within establishments where excellence is standard. They also aim to acknowledge those who make a positive difference in this sector as well as the efforts that the experts put in ensuring their customers always receive top services and unforgettable experiences.

These awards acknowledge everyone who works hard to enhance the reputation of the country, from restaurants that serve delicious dishes to bars and clubs that keep Ireland alive at nights, shopping centres as well as museums and tourist attractions that promote and showcase the rich Scottish heritage.

A Spokesperson for the Scottish Hospitality Awards 2022 said: ”Working for the hospitality industry can be challenging at times and the last few years have shown that. These awards aim to recognise those who have succeeded in this sector, despite the difficulties. There are people who have dedicated their whole career in making the country a special destination for visitors. It is time to give those professionals the recognition they deserve.

“The awards will provide a platform to thank and honour those who have contributed to making Scotland a friendly and welcoming place, enhancing the country’s reputation nationally and internationally. We would like to congratulate all the finalists for their nomination and wish them the best of luck.”
